I am retired, 79 yrs old, live in San Benito, South Texas. I started adding mostly my relatives and connections. Feel free to contact me if you want more information on them. More recently I have added entire cemeteries. Please also feel free to contact me and let me know if I have posted an error, or if you want to add something to one of my postings. The summer of 2011 I took 1900 gravestone photos in cemeteries in South Dakota where many cousins are buried. Nov 2012 I finished posting them all. I will transfer ownership if I have one of your close family and you wish to maintain it. If you want to request a transfer or a correction, please use the edit feature on the memorial. That saves me a lot of time finding them, and gives me your number.

RE: Dorathea Backhaus photo Have you looked in familysearch.org recently. They have added lots of marriage, birth and death records. They have a pretty good search system also, much improved from the simple page that it used to be. I entered Backhaus in Iowa and saw quite a few records there. Katherine
Whitney George, my name is Linda and I am the one who is getting the information on the Whitneys in the Macomb Center Cem. in Michigan. I have found your tree and realize that I have some you will want. I am from the Stroup family but not on this line. But, what the heck. So far I have found 7 children for Isaac Sr. and Susan. And for 5 of them, marriages and some children. You said you are 75, well I am right behind you and really do not want to go on down with the Whitneys as I have my hands full now. I would however like to talk to you. My email is listed here so will you email me and I then will give you my phone number. Thanks for reading this.
RE: Jennie Mattie Belknap Crosby Thanks for your reply George! It is confusing but Jennie's father was married twice and her mother was married twice: Thomas Milton Belknap 1839-1910 +Almira Spaulding 1844-1877 1) Francis Marion Belknap 1864- 2) Cora Belknap 1866- 3) Josephine A. Belknap 1868- 4) Blanch M. Belknap 1872- 5) Burrell Spencer Belknap 1874-1952 +Martha A. Dupree 1854-1930 1) Jennie Mattie Belknap 1879-1919 2) George W. Belknap 1882-1959 3) Stella V. Belknap 1883- 4) Pearl Belknap 1889-1958 5) Vera V. Belknap 1894-1939
Martha A. Dupree 1854-1930 +John J. Morehouse 1) John W. Morehouse 1871-1947 2) James W. Morehouse 1873- Hope this helps clear up people in the obit!
RE: Episcopal Church-Washington nc My family is from Bosque Co Tx, Smithbend. Big family cemetery which is on Find A Grave, Coon Creek. I am doing Beaufort Co, NC, but not at your speed. It's a challenge finding the names of these little cemteries. Charlotte
The individual stone are all in a row on either side of the large monument. The small stones are covered with black moss etc and you can hardly read them. I have some cleaner on the way that is very good at removing that crud, and will not hurt the stone in any way. I have sprayed the stones once and that didn't do it. I will give them a second cleaning this s pring. At that time I will photo each head stone and place the pics on the appropriate site.
The next photo will be taken of the large stone very soon. The shade has now left and on a sunshiny day the picture will be of excellent quality. I'm not pleased with the present one.
The cleaning solution is called (Wet and Forget). I had it specially ordered at True Valu.
